Spring is the word

Posted by on Apr 24, 2019 in Uncategorized | 9 comments

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s April Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around SPRING. Spring is a special time of year – it’s fun to celebrate the beauty of nature and to get back outside during this transition of the seasons. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

When I was thinking about my project for today’s hop I decided to use a stamp set that had been sitting waiting for me to use it!  You guys know, I have really gone back to the basics with my stamping.  And the Here Comes the Sun stamp set is absolutely perfect for anyone who loves the essence of stamping.

Is this not the cutest stamp set!!!  I sure do think so!!  Besides the fact that you can sing along with George Harrison as you stamp! You also get great sentiments and some super fun itty bitty images.


  • The background was made on shimmery white paper with embossing paste and gray granite ink.  After the embossing dried, well almost dried.  Woops…..the background was sloppy watercolor with balmy blue and gray granite
  • Some of the detail of the embossing was lost because I was impatient and did not let the embossing dry completely before watercoloring around it. Learn from my mistake!!!
  • The you are my sunshine was stamped and punched out with the 2 1/4 inch punch
  • The final steps was to pot the card together using the gingham gala paper, a card base made from daffodil delight, and gray granite layering. Last but not least the sentiment was popped up using dimensionals

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Brian King at Stamp with Brian King at Stamp with Brian . There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

Blog loving Easter Hop!

Posted by on Apr 5, 2019 in Uncategorized | 6 comments

Welcome to the April Blogging Friends Blog Hop.  This month we are celebrating Easter.  That time when spring has bloomed, bunnies roam leaving chocolate eggs, and flowers are beautiful.  Life just seems sweeter this time of year.  I have been looking forward to using the Gingham Gala designer series paper so very much.  And celebrating Easter seemed to be the perfect opportunity!  I love how well the Gingham paper goes with the Daffodil from You’re Inspiring


  • the daffodils from the You’re Inspiring stamp set were stamped with black ink
  • I used the stampin’ wright markers to color the image
  • Then the sentiment was stamped.  I did not realize that the Happy Easter was crocked untill I started taking the pictures.  I decided to leave it because, Handmade cards do not have to be perfect!  Right???? At least that is what I am trying to tell myself as I cringe looking at the picture!  Really, I am trying to let it go….really!!!
  • the final step was to pop the colored image up on the card.

Thank you for stopping by today!   I hope you will continue to hop along using the guide below!
